The Cruelty Free Beauty Box Review by Mel – September 2019

Thank you to Chloe who owns The Cruelty Free Beauty Box for asking me yet again to review one of their boxes. I haven’t tried out their new boxes yet! Yes, they have some great changes, you will need to read on to find out!

The new box design is all about being kinder to the environment. Coloured boxes are bleached or dyed which also adds to emissions! I did not know that! The contents card inserts are made from seed paper. I have to say, I really am impressed so far and that is just from the outside. Wait until I see what is inside, eek!

So how much are the new boxes?

  • The Beauty Box Mini – 100%Plastic free, 3-6 products. £22.95 every 2 months.
  • The Beauty Box Original – Max 1/3 plastic packaged products, 5-8 products. £29.95 every 2 months.
  • The Beauty Box Deluxe – Same as the original but with extra lifestyle and snack products 7-12 products. £39.95 every 2 months.
  • Ethical Rogue – Mens Grooming Products, 5-8 items, £29.95 every 3 months.
  • Ethical Rogue Deluxe – same as above but with lifestyle and snacks 7-12 products. £39.95 every 3 months.
  • Ethical Glow – Make up only, 6-10 products. £49.95 every 3 months.

What is inside my box?

I have the Beauty Box Original, which would cost £29.95 every 2 months.

Total Box Value = £81.80!

Use the discount code ‘BOXESSION’ for 10% off your first box too!

So, with our discount code this box would be £26.95, giving you a ridiculous saving of £54.85!!! Now I can absolutely see why they have changed these boxes to bi monthly after seeing that. You are getting more expensive products, more full size items and more in the box. It is a win/win situation this because it is the same price wise as you would have spent on 2 boxes before under the old pricing plan!

Time for the best bit, testing the treats…

Love Absolute Blue Moon Facial Bar

This is an actual revelation. I have to be honest I am terrible for not washing my face properly before I go to bed as I am too tired and I need something that is quick. This is my new favourite thing. I have been using it daily, I have also used the konjac sponge with it! So simple just to dampen the sponge and swish it around over the facial bar. This is going to last me months too. Really impressed!

Greenfrog Botanic Natural Konjac Sponge

I already use these so adding one in a box is a great thing as I don’t have to buy it myself. I also use the body ones. They are brilliant, they are natural and kind on the skin. I love it when they dry up overnight then you wet them and they grow again. Highly recommend you try them if you haven’t before.

London Copyright Ultimate Gel Eyeliner

I only wear makeup for occasions, and I did have one to use this for! So the gel potted eyeliner is new to me but I know about them. I have always used the felt pens. One thing I know is that if they do start to dry up you can add a little bit of natural oil such as rosehip oil and it will make it good as new again. I found it easier than I thought to apply, and it is a true black.

London Copyright Angled Eyeliner Brush

I have never used one of these either. The angle makes it easier to apply your wing I found. With a pen sometimes I find myself not getting enough of a turn on it and then I have to wipe and re apply. I am impressed by the price of this brand too.

BAO Skincare Nourish Urself Treatment Balm

I love a balm, I am not joking when I tell you I could stock a shop! I haven’t tried this yet as I am using up a couple I already have opened, but it will get used. Especially with the winter months coming and my combination skin!

The Salt Parlour Salt & Sulphur Scrub

I have had a couple of these now. I think I had one in a previous box? These smell amazing and are really gritty. They are great for any problem dry skin areas, I always use them on my upper arms as I get a lot of dry skin there. The little wooden spoons are great to apply the scrub with, then I continue to use them for other things.

My Verdict?

I am really impressed with all of the changes that are being made. The fact that The Cruelty Free Beauty Box are actively helping to reduce plastic waste too is brilliant. You can now keep your Men happy too ladies with their Ethical Rogue boxes, will stop them from complaining about your deliveries, win/win!

Don’t forget that if you want to order any items from the shop, you can add them onto your subscription so that the postage is free. The code ‘BOXESSION’ will get you 10% off any of the above subscriptions. What are you waiting for?!…
